  • what the hec happened!!

    i salvaged this old washing machine tub for a fire pit.

    i lit it up for the first fire.

    about 5 minutes into the burn i heard a very loud release of gasses.

    as you can see from the pics, something in the rim of the tub burned and released a plume of gasses about 12 freet into the air.

    what the hec is in these old tubs that would cause this?
